CBS Midseason Schedule: Sophia Bush vs. Chicago P.D., Celebrity Big Brother vs. Olympics, S.W.A.T. Moves and More

CBS Midseason Schedule

CBS on Wednesday revealed its midseason schedule, and it pits Sophia Bush against her former Chicago P.D. fam, moves S.W.A.T. to Sundays, starts a new Amazing Race and throws a whole lotta Celebrity Big Brother against the potentially snow-challenged Winter Olympics on NBC.

In Good Sam, Bush stars as Dr. Sam Griffith, a gifted heart surgeon who excels in her new role as chief of surgery after her renowned boss (played by Awake‘s Jason Isaacs) falls into a coma. But when said boss wakes up months later and demands to resume his duties, Sam is tasked with supervising this egotistical surgeon… who happens to be her father. (With the sitcom Smallwood still awaiting a premiere date, Good Sam marks the only new scripted fare on CBS’ sked.)

Back in May, S.W.A.T. was announced as being Sunday-bound (to fill the void left by SEAL Team‘s move to Paramount+), though its solid performance in the Friday leadoff spot led some to suspect it might stay put. CBS, though, has a new cycle of Undercover Boss to circulate, plus the Sunday closer spot is a safer, less-volatile haven once the NFL season is over.

And with the Winter Olympics hitting NBC starting Feb. 4, CBS will sprinkle across its schedule 19 total hours of Celebrity Big Brother Season 3, thus saving fresh episodes of NCIS, The Equalizer and others from potentially formidable competition.

Other than the above, CBS’ schedule is hugely BAU, with any current fare returning from the holiday break in the first week of January. Then, as a little bonus, you already have the next cycle of Survivor to look forward to, arriving March 9.
